Tori & Dean

Our Kids Aren't 'Props!'

8/11/2009 2:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tori Spelling and hubby Dean McDermott are finally responding to Candy Spelling's scathing letter posted on TMZ -- the one where she said the couple used their kids as "reality show props" to generate conflict.

Though Tori played dumb to the ordeal -- saying they've been on vacation and "haven't read anything" -- Dean stepped up and defended their honor as parents, telling TMZ "We don't use our children as props, we take really good care of our children, we love our children ... everyone's entitled to their opinion."

No, Dean does not have another daughter. He and his first wife had plans to adopt a baby that's all. The baby was adopted by his first wife. Dean was already with Tori. As for Jack, Dean's other son, he visits him regularly and Jack spends every holiday down in California with Tori and Dean. A lot of times you will see Dean in airports on his way to Canada to spend time with his son during the school year. People like to make up stories - that's all it is - made up.

They're all nuts, but when Tori finally gets tired of that ugly dork she's married to, the stories will be better than the mother/daughter stuff we're hearing now.

Why do her kids have a police escort but the two kids standing behind them have none? Aren't the police supposed to serve and protect everyone? Or just the rich & famous? Also, what's up w/Dean's legs? He looks like he had a tattoo removed on the back of one of his legs. Probably that skin disease that Jackson claimed to have!

This is just another case of celebrities that can't make money acting so they exploit themselves and their families for money. Another show that is not watched in my home.

I love it! I'm glad you said it! He had just adopted a new little baby with his wife, they have a son as well. Then this piece of work comes to the HOTEL ROOM WHILE HIS FAMILY IS VACATIONING to tell his wife he is love with Tori Spelling after making a movie with her. Priceless. Now that is the kind of man I want to steal away from another woman. Two peas in a pod I say.

He had gall, at least Tori had no children when she dumped her ex husband. But......Tori had zero issue with watching this man break up HIS FAMILY with her the direct reason. Then he has the balls to cry on TV over his other children how he never sees them, blah, blah, blah,and bring them into his reality nightmare! I'd have killed him if I was MaryJo, his ex.


One can say a lot things about me, but, no one will ever be able to call me a home wrecker, my selfishness would never come in the way of a marraige, esp. with kids. I would never want to be directly responsible for any childs pain in taking their Daddy away. Not me.

Sorry, not a fan of these two low morals and zero charactor people.

Tory's mom is an extremely jealous & angry person. Jealousy is poisonous and she is clearly that! What’s worse than a jealous mother calling her own daughter “Middle Aged” for the whole world to see and in the tone she did. Her sole intention is to make her own daughter feel crappy about her self. Who else would go to the extreme she is. And to attack Tory’s husband & kids is just someone (abusive mom) clearly trying to do them harm. Her mom is right here in this blog someplace writing yet again whatever hurtful thing she can from her own desk alone and angry. Trying to have one moment of what her daughter has. A father who loved her and a husband that loves her. Tory’s mother is without doubt an very psychotic abusive parent.

Since their only jobs are the reality show and the kids are front and center, yes. The kids ARE props.

Candy is jealous of Tori because Aaron loved Tori so much more.
Candy was a horrible mom and cheated on Aaron constantly.
Shame on her for downing Tori for being a better mom than she could ever dream of.
Aaron Spelling RIP

The birthday show thing was a set-up, plain and simple, whereby Tori planned to use what was happening between them as fodder for her reality show. It was as insincere and manipulative as you can get. Tori ain't no innocent victim; she is and was a spoiled little diva who was determined to make hay from being the child of a rich and famous producer to advance her career, one way or another. If she didn't get the inheritance, she was going to sell herself and her family situation. And despite all the surgery, she still looks like a horse and her fake boobs are disgustingly bad.

If Candy wanted a private meeting, why didn't she initiate it? The kid was turning a year old. Candy is all about drama and at her old age, it's sad.

Your father dies and your mother talks your father into leaving the child she hates a very small amount of money. Mother hates you so she won't give you a penny. So, you go out and try to make a living and mommy dearest HATES that! She wants to see her daughter
NOT succeed in anything because she (mother) believes her life would be more fun and complete if daughter must come begging on her knees for a penny at which time she’ll kick her when she’s down… yet again.

However, mom is wrong...daughter and son in law can make a comfortable living and mother HATES that! Therefore, mother is seething with anger and trying to sabotage daughter’s financial means at any cost…even in public blogs like this!

Tory's mother, she doesn't need you.
